Doge Barking at the Moon

Friday, April 16th, 2021

I can't believe Dogecoin is climbing like this. I bought in at $0.055 (5 1/2 cents) earlier this year and sat on it for a while. Then it jumped up to 47 cents this morning! Elon Musk said that it was a joke crypto but it doesn't seem like one right now.

Why is the price of Dogecoin jumping so high? Mainly due to this:

Elon Musk tweet


All it takes for Dogecoin to jump is Elon Musk to post a tweet with the word "doge" in it. Right after this tweet, it started it's meteoric rise to 0.47. It has stayed in the 0.30s ever since, gravitating toward the 0.40s again by 11am.

What does this mean? Well, if you bought Doge like I did at 0.055, it's now worth a considerable amount more.

I had accumulated 14,000 coins over the course of several months earlier this year when it was at 0.055

14,000 x 0.055 = $770 USD

I sold them when it hit $0.09 earlier this week on April 13, for $1,260, for a net pre-tax profit of $490. Not bad!

However, at the time of this post, it is valued at 0.41. Had I waited...

14,000 x 0.41 = $5,740

I did get back into it on the way up (couldn't help myself) and bought in at 0.133485 for $500 and another $100 worth at 0.107503 as it dropped. I sold 4,676 at $0.30 during it's incredible climb this morning for a profit of $811! Again, not bad!

So far, I'm up to $1,301 in pre-tax net profit from a few exchanges.

I thought, "ok! One more time, because it's going to hit at least $1!"

I'm back into it at 3,142 coins with a plan to re-buy when it dips, then ride it to the moon!

Will it reach $1? Maybe. Analysts were predicting that it would reach 0.10 by the end of 2021. Whoops!

I think they underestimated the power of memes and Elon Musk's ability to Tweet. He has been silent since on Twitter this latest boom. I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that he posts again soon but please wait until I snag some more coins!
